When you die, you can be buried in a handcrafted garment infused with "Infinity Mushroom" spores, and be consumed/remediated by fungi...all for a mere $999-$1500 (or $75-$325 for animal companions up to the size of a Great Dane). They're still 14-16 weeks from shipping but you can order now, so don't die anytime soon.

HUFF POST WRITEUP http://www.huffingtonpost.com/pierce-nahigyan/why-being-eaten-by-mushro_b_9135482.html (mentions Stamets)

"It is the mushroom’s versatility that inspired artist Jae Rhim Lee to create the “Infinity Mushroom,” a fungus bred specifically to munch on human tissue. Using her own nail clippings, skin, blood and various excretions, Lee has “trained” the mushroom to recognize and consume her cells with the aim of remediating the industrial toxins stored in her body (after she expires, of course). This in turn has led to the creation of what the artist calls the “mushroom death suit,” a handcrafted garment infused with Infinity Mushroom spores."

Although edible strains "native to everywhere" (?) are among mushrooms being used, research is ongoing as to whether the mushrooms will be edible. The bodies buried thus will still be in conventional cemeteries, so you won't be part of a larger food web, just a cemetery mycorrhizal network symbiotically doing something with a few trees and miles of Kentucky Bluegrass :/
